Plus, they're old. Nobody likes old people music. Why can't people like normal music like that awesome Call Me Maybe song.

His old threads about music snobbery were way better back when they were in the Media Center. Ever since he sold out and started posting them in the Lounge, they just feel so corporate.

To his credit, at least they aren't overproduced. He still manages to keep the garage-style posting feel alive. If he ever starts spell checking, I'm done reading his threads.

I always get a chuckle when Born In The USA is used in any flag waving way since it's basically a protest song... or at least a song about how bad vets were treated after the war. It's obvious people don't know the words other the the title being repated lol.

No offense but those bands aren't exactly obscure. They've all had pop hits in America as well as England. The first two were quite big here.

Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album,Duke. Before that,I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time,it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums.

As an aside, I got tickets for the upcoming Springsteen concert in Denver, and have a question.

We've typically gotten tickets to his concerts and end up in a less desirable location, just due to supply and demand. We decided this time that we didn't want to be up behind the stage or in the rafters, and of course all of the "premium" seats were already "sold" within one minute of the tickets going on sale.

So I bought general admission floor tickets.

I've never done general admission floor tickets. It seems like you're pretty close and you're looking straight at the stage, which is nice, but of course standing for three hours is less fun. And do you end up getting crowded a lot?

I'm wondering because I suspect that the "people" who "bought" the premium tickets will begin scalping them since they "can't attend the concert". I suspect that these tickets will likely be sold for a higher price than they were "bought" for, but would it be worth the money to pay through the nose to get those seats as opposed to staying in general admission?

Recognize that I'm a 49 year-old guy who doesn't like crowds, but appreciates good music, even if my tastes are less sophisticated than those of people like kcnut.

With standing room tickets even on the floor you better plan to get there as early as possible and be standing for more than 3 hours. If you aren't near the front of the standing section I hope you're tall and if you aren't near the front of the standing section you're still going feel like a mile from the stage. Yes, you're going to be in a large crowd as well.

If you decide to buy the premium floor (sitting) seats then make sure you're again getting as close as possible because once Springsteen hits the stage those people are going to stand as well.

So plan to stand to see what's going on... whether you have a "seat" or not.

The closer to the stage you try to get, the more crowded it will be. It's not a good place for short people, but I think you and your wife will be fine if you can handle 3 hours of standing. I don't think a Springsteen crowd will get real rough like the mosh pit at, say... a Five Finger Death Punch concert.

If the general admission crowd does start to get a little moshy, there are some techniques demonstrated in this video that might help you get some elbow room (NSFW):

Heh, a Springsteen crowd will be better behaved no doubt... but you'll have some drunk assholes even if you're seeing Debbie Boone.
